In case you own an iPhone 6 or 6S and you would like to have more occasions to use the 3D Touch feature of the smartphone, facebook has some good news for you. The company is planning on bringing more 3D Touch features to its app that will allow users to peek and pop links, profiles, and other content, according to sources. According to facebook, the new features will work with “web links, profiles, pages, groups, events, photos, profile pictures, and cover photos.” Thanks to the new additions, iPhone 6 and 6S users will be able to lightly press for a preview of the content they want to check out, and if they consider that it is worth opening, they can continue pressing to open the document, photo, web link or page they were looking at.
The social network app will also get a “quick view” shortcut that will pop up whenever users press the home screen icon of the app and will take them directly to their timeline. If you are one of the iPhone 6 or 6S owners, don’t get too excited just yet. The company announced that they are going to roll out the new features to a small number of users first, and the general public will get them over the coming months.
The new features will roll out in stages, so if you are really lucky, you could get them before your friends do. if you aren’t one of the lucky iPhone 6 or 6S users, you could end up waiting for a few more weeks before you will be able to enjoy the latest additions to the Facebook mobile app on your smartphone. Until then you can use the 3D Touch features offered by Instagram, and we are positive that there will also see a whole bunch of new apps that will make use of this great feature.
